On the first of October, in morning rush hour, Occupy DC marked their first anniversary by marching through traffic and visiting lobbyists and other corporate targets.
At the offices of Cargill (GMOs and slave trading) and at JBG(development and genterification), Occupiers got ahead of the cops and stormed the buildings. This led to the usual pushing and shoving as cops and security desperately tried to push the far greater number of Occupy activsts out of the buildings.
Douglas Development, the banker’s lobbying group, BP, Monsanto, JP Morgan Chase’s DC headquarters, and a variety of corporate lobbyists were besieged after attempts to storm them failed.
Occupy DC said they were going to storm K st, and that’s exactly what they did.
